Interestingly, we don’t see many 4WD and trailer combos on our forum, as it’s an excellent option for travel (the last example I shared was this 100 Series Land Cruiser and expedition trailer). The ability to utilize just the 4WD for shorter trips while retaining the trailer for longer adventures makes for a versatile setup. Furthermore, most of us don’t have the luxury of owning a dedicated overland rig and a daily driver. The ability to have a trailer outfitted for camping that can be towed by the same 4WD you commute in is a great compromise. Weight is a big issue when driving on challenging terrain, so the option to pack heavy goods in the trailer and then leave it securely pitched at a campground is a key advantage. I highly recommend reading Graeme Bells’s article on The First Ever Jeep Branded Addax Trailer, as he discusses in detail the benefits and drawbacks of this approach to overlanding. It’s worth noting that today’s offering is not just any trailer but a desirable 2021 Smittybilt Scout (which has been fully equipped for travel), as reviewed on the GrayLine Overland YouTube channel. If that wasn’t enough, the 4WD in question is a stunning 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited AEV, which showcases premium modifications and has covered just 78,945 miles.
From the Seller:
“This Jeep has been very well maintained. Lots of extras, no known leaks, and it is mechanically sound. No off-roading has been done with this Jeep. This is a third vehicle for me, so it was used [for] weekend fun. AEV (American Expedition Vehicles) is considered one of, if not the best, aftermarket companies for upgrading a Jeep.”
